This wooden carving from an oak tree trunk is of 33 water birds (ducks, herons, swans etc) climbing into the air in a spiral. Created by Bill Hodgson using specialist chainsaws this sculpture can be found in the grounds of York University behind Heslington Hall.


  1. Interesting use for such a potentially destructive tool. I love waterbirds of any type.

  2. very cool.
    there is a town near me that has several tree carvings by a local resident artist - I should venture up there with my camera and see how they compare to this one.
